FireSong is the first book I have read from the author Aaron Lazar. I did not know what to expect. The first thing that caught my attention is the author’s smooth writing style. The second thing is the never ending twists and turns that keep the reader guessing until the end of the book.
The story kept me under a spell I could not put it down until I finished reading it.
There are so many endearing things about the book that warmed my heart. I really liked the characters in the story, especially the grand children, Camille and pastor Nahum Hardina. The characters appeared so real. It felt like I have known them all of my life. They are the type of people you would not mind being close friends with.
The magic of this well-written book takes the reader to East Goodland, a place where life has gone berserk and the main character Gus must find a plausible solution to all the unexplained mayhem.
The trouble begins with a rogue tornado that takes place during Sunday morning service. The tornado wreaks havoc on the town’s cemetery, exposing the body of a man. Much to the dismay of Gus LeGarde, instead of savoring quiet time with his family, he has no other choice but to help find solutions to all the strange happenings. The problems keep coming one after another.
The author does a great job keeping the reader in total suspense; when you think a problem has been resolved; here comes another one that will keep the reader turning the page until the very end of the story.
If you are looking for a story that will keep the adrenaline running non-stop, I highly recommend you picking up a copy of FireSong.
